AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 24 November 1888

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. The longed for break up in the weather has not yet taken place. although while we write the threatening aspect of the sky gives every romse of a change of some kind. We have been taught this season, however, to plac every little dependenes on these threatmings, as times witllout number have appiarances built up the hopes of the farmers, and they have ,etired. to rest confident of a night's heavy rain. only to find, perhaps, a fierce northerly wind blowing in the morning. The wave of prospenty that has for some time been pissing over Melbourne and its surroundings has lulled City folk into the belief that the unexamtpled prosperity for them has been general. This, however, is a very serious mistake. The pastoral and agricultural interests of. Victoria-in f act, we may safely say throughout Australia-were neverim a more critical condition than at present, and should the season continue dry, thousands of land holders will be involved in absolute ruin.

SWEARING FOR THE FAMILY. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 24 November 1888

SWEAZRING FOR THE FAIlLY. A returned Chinese mis.sionary relates the following anecdote, showing the caution of the Chinese. He says: During one of our examinations for candi .dates for baptism at Ngukang, I observed that one woman and some three or four young people had the same surname. This circum stance led to the following conversation between myself and one of the young men: ' I observe you all have the same surname. Are you members of the same family?' I in Squired. ' Yes,' one replied. ' This is my mother, and these are my brothers.' ' Where is your father?' I continued. 'He is at home, attending to his business.' 'Does he approve of your embracing Christianity?' 'Yes, he is entirely willing.' 'Whly does not your father himself become a Christian?' ' He says it would not do for all the family to embrace Christianity.' ' And why,' I asked, with some curiosity, 'does he think so ?' ' He says that if we all become Christians our heathen neighbours will take advantage of that ei...

BEHIND THE SCENES AT THE OPERA. A FAMOUS IMPRESARIO. (Pall 3all Gazelte.) ' The flood of reminiscences which each autumn brings with it has begun this year with the very entertaining memoirs of Mr. Mapleson. The two volumes which he publishes to-day are full of reminiscences of famous singers, which are at once good-natured and amusmg. Not even a prima donna is a heroine to her own impresario, and Mr. Mapleson has not, as too many memoir writers do, uniformly dipped his pen into honey. A VOICELESS TENOR. Before proceeding to give our readers a few samples of the kind of entertainment to be met with in these volumes, it will be interesting to referto a passage or two in the early career of Mr. Mapleson himoself. He had prepared him self for the duties of operatic impresario by a long apprenticeship both as a singer and a musical manager. His career in the former capacity was, however, very litenrlly cut short. After fulfilling several engagements in Italy, Mr. 3\apleson returned to E...

A Confession. [Newspaper Article] — The Caulfield and Elsternwick Leader — 1 December 1888

A Confession. Do you remember, little wife, How years ago we two together Saw naught but love illumine life In sunny days or winter weather? Do you recall in younger years To part a day was bitter pain? Love's light was hid in clouds of tears Till meeting cleared the sky again. Do you remember how we two Would stare into each other's eyes, Till all the earth grew heavenly blue And speech was lost in happy sighs Do you another thing recall, That used to often happen thenu; How simply passing in the hall, We'd stop to smile and kiss again? Do yen remember how I sat And, reading, held your hand it mine, Caressing it with gentle pat One pnt for every blessed line' Do you recall how at the play Through hours of agony we tanied The lover's griefs brought us dismay; Oh, we rejoiced when they were married. And then walked homeward arm in arm, Beneath the crescent moonlet new, That smiled on us with silent charm; So glad that we were married too. lh me, 'twas years and years ago When all til...
